adopted parents and their adopted child From personal stories of becoming an adoptive family to well-researched advice from experts about how to be the best adoptive parent possible, Pact provides information and opportunities to learn from those who have come before you. Topics include personal stories of adoption, challenges in adoption; how to talk with children, family friends, and strangers about adoption; transracial adoption; LGBT adoption; single-parent adoption; parenting birth (born-to) and adopted children together; and same-race adoption.

Pact offers pre-placement consultations and placement services for prospective parents who are looking to adopt a child of color as their first choice. We also offer support for adoptive parents who have already adopted (or are considering adopting) children of color through our online chat groups, our educational workshops and conferences, our nationally acclaimed Pact Family Camp, one-on-one consultations focused on the special issues inherent to adoptive parenting, and regional parent-organized affiliates in Northern California, Southern California, and throughout the U.S. Become a member of Pact to take advantage of all these resources and to receive our newsletter, Pact’s Point of View, which features many articles on the intersection of adoption, parenting, and race. Pact members receive a discount at our online bookstore, which features great reads on this topic carefully selected for both adults and kids of all ages. We also recommend blogs and other online resources that we believe have the very best advice and information for adoptive families of children of color about adoption, race, and parenting.
